Local chefs are gearing up for Chef Louie Bossi’s third annual Taste of Recovery on June 1 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Old School Square to benefit the Crossroads Club.
Bossi, the namesake of the popular Louie Bossi restaurants, is now a successful chef and restaurant owner, after overcoming drug and alcohol addiction. His addiction was the catalyst for his charity culinary event that raises money to help recovering addicts.
He donates the proceeds of the Taste of Recovery, which features many local chefs and restaurants, to the Crossroads Club, started in 1984 to help recovering addicts. It’s a Delray Beach organization that hosts meetings all week, every week.
Tickets are $40 in advance or $50 at the door, and includes tasting bites as well as voting for best bite. Participating restaurants include Louie Bossi, Bird in the Hand, Basel, Brule Bistro, City Oyster, Dada, Driftwood, Death or Glory, Hai House, Josie’s, Rocco’s Tacos, Michel’s Catering, Seasons 52 and Winemaker’s Table, to name a few.
This year, you can buy $5 raffle tickets, too, for The Golden Table, a table of 10 with butler service and swag bags.
